Default Birdie

I went disc shopping the other day and saw the birdie putter, it's design intrigues me, but I want some opinions before I buy it. I currently throw an omega ss, and threw an aviar dx before that. Who has tried it, and if you have what do you like/dislike about it?

I have one in my collection, and I will say that they don't like to turn. It will hold a straight line, but its hard to make the hyzer and anny. They also don't like the wind. I think of the Birdie as a beginer putter , for someone just learning the game.

I rarely use mine for approach shots, maybe if the basket is on an incline. I mainly use it as a second putter if the basket is on a hill, because the disc is made to not stand up and roll down the hill.

You sure about that. Next to The "Wheel", the disc looks like it would roll a mile.

Team is solid as it was and a little deeper... I seem to recall smack-talk similar to this from another team in your conference last season... Who was it? I forgot....

Miss St prob. Our team flat out sucks at QB. It would not surprise me one bit if we lose. We are either a 5-7 team ballclub or a 10-12 team ball club. if we find a QB who can throw we will win 10-12 if not then it is 2008-2009 all over.

The Birdie is my daughters favorite putter. That having been said, the thing I don't like about it is it's lack of versatility. As other have said no turn and bad in the wind. I find those to be true but my biggest dislike is the lack of glide. Having used an Aero (too much glide) and a Birdie, I prefer something in between. I like the Wizard and the Aviar.

I tried carrying a Birdie for those long approach/putts that you don't want to carry way past the basket if (in my case, when) you miss. I gave it up as a disc that I don't use enough.
